The Return of Bucky,
This review is from: Bucky O' Hare (Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
First bear in mind that even when Bucky was first made in 1989, it was created on a very small budget which meant it couldn't get everything it wanted and the DVD people could only work with what they had.
Content: All 12 episodes! Which is exactly what the UK has needed for years since some of the videos weren't for sale over here. As for the extras you do get the scripts and character profiles, but that's all. But a lot of this can be put down to the fact that they didn't have much else, commentaries? Well none of the staff have worked on Bucky for 10+ years and so i'm not sure they could add that much really. Artwork? well for the expense it's worth locating people and getting the rights it's not cost effective really. Interviews? documentaries? Well see commentaries for your answer.
But overall, for providing a solid digital collection 9/10
Sound: Well no problem i can hear from viewing the first 5 episodes, everything is clear and concise and that's all that's needed.
Presentation: Nicely done with scrolling shots of all the action, intercut with random snippets of stuff going boom! Plus the good box artwork but i think there's too much reliance on the main music theme though. 8/10.
So overall i think it comes away with a solid 9, but add one point for the sheer courage of the makers at Metrodome who have taken a cartoon series which most people unfortunately have forgotten, and put it out on the marketplace well represented and manufactured without having legions of fans that Futurama and family guy can rely on, just for the few fans that really are thankful for this job just tells you something about the company.
